Swoon Thursday ~ 10/10/13

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.  Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

He is seeking absolution.

Flynn Caldwell has a hero complex and it’s one of the reasons he joined the New York City Fire Department. He has spent his entire professional career trying to atone for that one person he failed to save. Because, if he can do that, then perhaps he can be worthy of love again.

She is seeking escape.

Rowan Page’s life is nothing short of a disaster. Always immersed in trouble, she has only herself to depend on. She’s determined to pull herself out of this mess and make something of her life, despite the hard years she has lived on the streets of New York.

Together, they have the chance to become complete.

Flynn and Rowan’s worlds exist miles apart, but when a chance meeting brings them together, neither of them can deny the instant pull that connects them to each other. What starts as a tiny spark eventually flares into a fire so hot, it refuses to be extinguished.

For it to work, both of them will need to jump feet first into the flames to see where it takes them, despite the risk of being burned.



Are you sure?

Wanta meet FLYNN?

I don't waste any time and I press my mouth against his.  We mutually open up to each other and I tilt my head sideways.  Our mouths move against each other, tasting...testing boundaries.

One of Flynn's hands moves from around my back to hold the back of my head, pushing me in tighter to him.  His tongue slips into my mouth at the same time and at the first contact with mine, both of us groan loudly.

This kiss turns more fevered and I'm riddled with he need to touch more of him.  As if sensing the urge within me, Flynn's hands drop and grip me under my ass.  In one smooth move, he scoots his butt further back on the bed and hauls me onto his lap.  (Kindle Location 1372)

Um...yeah, it does get better after that.  You need to read it!  What you think of Flynn?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
